Electronic commerce uses the web to bring together customers, vendors and suppliers in ways never before possible. The web enables your core business processes to improve customer service, reduce cycle time, get more results from limited resources and actually sell things. In short, it is using the web to sell goods, services and information to consumers.
The E-commerce technologies are designed to replace traditional paper-based workflow with faster, more efficient and reliable communications between computers. And it is on this technology that businesses are expected to piggyback on in the next millennium.
All you need is a computer, a browser, and internet access, and you can buy flowers, airline tickets, and even a car & lots. You are limited only by your i imagination!
